I think I mistook your statement. In the context of your earlier comments about age discrimination I took the statement about age discrimination being less contraversial than gender discrimination to be an implication that it shouldn't be.
I guess, the real reason I'm so passionate about this is because the whole thing is so ignored. Male discrimination is not the worst possible thing in the world, nor is the discrimination as harsh, overall, as female discrimination, it's just that there are people who might not even know male discrimination even exists. I want to convince people that it does exist. How would we like it if a political issue we cared about wasn't even recognized by 95% of the world?
I like Gaugin.
Hey me too ! & he arrived here by accident via typo for '' Paul Hogan '' hehe..
Gaugin was a jerk and an idiot, but a semi-interesting painter, I guess.
doesn't that sound familiar to an chess player (BF ) ?
Nah.. him (Gauguin) & Van were superb drinkers, raconteurs, womanisers & madmen, What not to like ?
They were hopeless wannabe bohemians; well, Van Gogh certainly was, anyway. Gauguin of course had more success there, but most came in such creepy fashion (the Tahitian jaunt replete with pre-pubescent girls etc) that it doesn't seem right to laud him for it.
And how admirable can he be if I always spell his name incorrectly?
Well as mentioned (see previous post) google were happy with '' Gogan ''. lol !.
Bohemian live-short burn-bright not sensible but I do admire...
Tahiti is cess-pit nowadays & cannot blame him for that :)
He lived until he was 54, had sex with pre-pubescent Tahitian girls in a coloniser-colonised relationship, and died of syphilis. No, these are not the acts of a bright bohemian.
how about this
No worse than Bill Clinton or anyone else in limelight. Morals always lacking for famous figures. Is power-thing..
Silvio Berlosconi etc, need I go on ?
Artists & politicians are seldom good role-models...
Sure, Clinton was a letch, but not because of the Lewinsky thing. And most of his jerkitude comes from being the United States president, which is a position of power one really needs to be a total jerk to attain.
& also you must think of the context of time & date looking around the world many reprehensible & abbhorent things were going on.
